"Explore the best of Yangshuo's jaw-dropping karst mountain landscapes and fascinating local culture on a laid back bike tour that hits all the must-see places and things to do. Soak up traditional rural village in a renovated Qing dynasty courtyard hotel, try your hand at Chinese cooking, see the Li River lightshow extravaganza, take a bamboo boat ride on the Yulong River and discover local life on quiet countryside roads and paths by bike." 

Yangshuo is one of China’s most tourist friendly destinations with arguably it’s most amazing landscapes and rural scenery. Any trip to China should ideally include a visit to Yangshuo where you will experience classic Chinese scenery, village culture and local life far from the big cities. This tour takes you right into village life - you'll stay in a beautifully restored Qing Dynasty hotel in the heart of Jiuxian village which is situated in the idylic Yulong River valley.  From here there are plentiful opportunities to explore by foot the surrounding farmland and tiny villages as the locals go about their daily life and we'll guide you throughout the area by bike.  We explore further along the Li River to the small villages of Liugong and and Fuli by bicycle and mix it up with a bamboo boat ride along the Yulong River.  Moon Hill is a favourite mountain to climb and we'll stop to take in the sublime karst mountain views.  The cycling is easy and relaxed and an unforgettable way to experience local life and rural China. We also throw in a cooking class where you will prepare your own local style lunch and, for one of the evenings, we include a visit to the Liu San Jie Light and Sound show that lights up the Li River featuring a cast of hundreds of performers.
